Pru Xebraa.a, i?ovesbr Zi,
-. Simon Ercwn, Editor of the New Ed
land Farmer, stated the following inter
esting facu at a meeting of the Concord
Farmer's Club: "." . '
"He remarked that he was familiar with
the care cf sheep in' his youth. He had
been obliged ti sit 'up night after night,
in cold weather, to take care of lambs',
because they were dropped too early.
The first broadcloth he ever wore, was
made from the wool of sheep which he
bad, assisted to raise. r Sheep raising was
formerly profitable,! but ft had beeu dis
continued among us chiefly on, account cf
the losses.' occasioned by dogs! He had
been informed that in the adjoining coun;
ty of Essex, there were only 500 sheep,
but there were 3,500 dogs ! A good
many persons are now. . entering upon the
business. A new spirit has Leon awak
ened upon the subject,- Sheep hare been
improved in the and productiveness! as
much as, and perhaps more, thaD cattle.
Fifty ytars ago, a ouarter of mutton in
England, that .weighed 15 or 20 pounds
was thought large.' Now a quarter, of
tnuttoti Is frequently seen weighing 50 or
60 pounds. .One weighing' 60 pounds
was recently exhibited in' Boston i market.
t 'If there is a demand for mutton, bheep
raising must be mede prcfitatle. He hid
;o doubt that there , would' be & demand
for .all the good mutton tbat might be
raised. He tpoke of the effect of Jceep-.
in" sheep reclaiming pastures.' He
knew of a ract of land in Plymouth co.,
that was furmety so covered with briars
and rose bushes. tM it wa3 almost impos
sible to walk through it. He saw it ia.t
fall, and it wasa btautiI green pasture,
with a smooth surface, anC1 a bush or
briar upon it. It had then been reclaim
ed bytbe use of sheep alone."
The following additional 'state'nents
were made by James 13. Elliott of Kec'tie,
New-Hamr.ahire. Our readers who ar? i
accustomed to the rich lands of the west
will bear in mind that when he speaks of
one acre being required to keep one
sheep, that he alludes to the thinner soil
and the rocky hill-sides ' of New Hamp
"He 'is engaged in sheep husbandry,
and has been tor five years. His sheep
had become bfeachy. When this is the
case, the best way is to change the en
tire flock. He had recently been looking
among the sheep in Vermont; and had
purchased a hundred, at the average price
oJ five dollars. H? expects' they will
yield from five to six pounds of wool. each
He has been to Albauy, and 'seen the
loug-wooled sheep.' Thty do best', as he
is informed, in small flocks.1 !He wishes
to keep a pretty, large flock ; has one pas
ture that will carry 300, and another that
will carry 500, and another that ; will
carry from 150 ; to '200. Sheeftrequire
about one acre each. If ; the" laud is very
rocky, they require more. Large sheep
require more. He has concluded to keep
fiue-woolcd sheep. Many of the farm
ers oh the Connecticut are' now ieediug
all the fcorri iheycan raise to their sheep.
They buy ivethers. and put them' up
about the 1st of December, and give
them cob-meal aud oats, all they will cat:
In March they -bear them, and send to
market in cars; alive. They will weigh
from 150 to 170 pounds, live weight, and
bring from five iiud a. half to seven cents
per pouud. In Walpble, New Hamp
shire, they are feeding 4,000 this win
ter. The farmer may fatten-' two sets in
the fall and wihten The manure from
shetp is belter than that from cows. From
21 sheep, he made ten loads of the best
manure he ever saw. Leaves, or some
proper absorbent, should be placed on the
bottom of the yard, aud litter also u&ed
as required. This manure is excellent to
mix with muck, It costs about forty cents
jn New Hampshire, to pasture a sheep
from the 10th of April to the 20th of No
vember, or till they are "snowed up,"
aud about $1,10 in the Winter. A sheep
requires about two pounds of hay daily.
He feeds with hay twice a day, aud once
with roots. Sheep require plenty fresh
air, and running water. Some keep them
without water, but-it is not so well. Sheep
will destroy almost every kind of bushes,
except pines and alders. Some shetp
are easily kept within ordiuary fences;
others will learn to jump over almost ev
ery fence. He related an anecdote of a
man who had kept a flock of sheep 29
years, and never knew but one to get out
of the pasture. Mr. E. thought small
mutton quite as good as large, but th it, as
most farmers in this section would keep
only small flocks, the long-wooled sheep
might be the most profitable here. The
Cotswolds and Southdowns would yield
fiom five to six pounds of wool. This
wool, is in demand for certain kinds of
manufacture. He said that a man of his
acquaintance in Vermont realizes 81,000
per year iiuui .ou succ
Select List cf Grapes.
A correspondent of the American Far
mer, whose experience entitles his opin
ion to respect, furnishes the following list
of grapes, the merits of which are well
ascertained, and all of which, in his opin
ion, are better :han Isabella and Cataw
ba: 1st. Delaware. Bunches and berries
medium sizp, round, red ; ; ripens four
weeks earlier than the Isabella; of ihe
highest excellence as to quality, hardi
ness and productiveness. Its right emi
nently to the first rank ii generally con
ceded by all who know."
2d. Diana. -Bunches. large, .-mostly
snouldered; berries large, round red :
J vine vigorous end productive ; ripens two
weeks later ttan the Delaware, and ap
proaches it" in excellence, both for table
use and for wine. ; , If grown in a small
space, must be root . pruned, at tho end
of the first season, and if very vigorous,
at the end of Use second.
3d. Anna. A white grape of the
highest flavor;' bunches and berries; me
dium to large; vine hardy and produc
live.. , It' begins to ripen as early as the
Diaria; but'does not progress so rapidly,
and cansequently ja. cold, seasons may be
considered net so early ;es Diana, but
much earlier thari the Catawba, and sur
passing it greatly in rich vinous . flavor.
4. Herbemcnt. Ail immense grower,
and the most ornamental of all oqr out
door vines ; perfectly hardy south of New
York ; it3 berries are medium and small
in size, but color deep ; purple covered
with bloom ; the bunches are very large.
Its rich spicy, vinous flavor is very dis
tinct, and of the greatest excellence. It
is fitly described by Downing, who says:
."Its berries are bags of wine." An ad
mirable variety for the latitude of New
York city, and further South. In texture
and flavor it may stand . in comparison
with the best Luropean varieties. .
5. Lenoir All that has been said of
Heirbemopt will apply generally to this
variety, except that the Lenoir is much
earier, ripening at least two weeks be
fore the Isabella.' Its fruit is very sweet
rich andtpicy, and has a very high char
acter for jvine, as weil as for table use,
and other purposes. ' :
' Rebecca would deserve all commends
tions for the garden, were it not that its
leaves, wuich are not abundant, like those
of Isabella, in most localities are subject
to mildew in unfavorable seasons.
There are two other varieties that
should not be passed without a word, as
few who have gardens would like to be
1. Union Village!---Which originated
with: the Shakers at a place of that name
iri Warren County, Ohio, not. far frora
Cincinnati, and was introduced by Mr.
Loogrorth. In appearance it is like a
monstous Isabella, and resembles it in
flavor, biit U richer, and ripens at least
one week, sooner. In bunch and berry it
maybe represented as twice the size of
that' variety. ' ; ' . .
" 2. Elsinburg.- Thi3 is directly the re
verse of the above, having-small berries;
but of ihq highest flavor, and of a deci
ded European , character, but it h hardy,
early and productive; with care, its long
shouldered bunches become very band -some
fruit sweet, spicy' and delicious.
. lit may be: remarked that the skin of
the Herbemont, Lenoir, and - EUinburg
adheres firmly to the flesh, like all the
foreign .varieties. ! . .

In the report of an exnerimpnt vsU
different kinds of wheat, in which the
ground had a very superior nreraration.
and in which the seed was dibbled in rows
' Tiarnlp3 among Corn.
In some recent notes we alluded to the
practice now becoming quite prevalent
there, of putting turnips iu the rows of
Corn. A , correspondent of a paper in
Pennsylvania', says': , !
'The practice of sowing turnips among
Ihdiah'carnt at the last hoeing, and es
pecially where the latter has been" thin
ned by . vtprms or other insects", is one
which cannot loo" urgently be recommen
ded. The turnip; is a vegetable vthich
requires less assistance from solar light
during the incipient stages of its devel
ment; than almost any plant in the whole
catalogue of edibles; consequently, it is
but slightly injured by the toliage of ihe
corn plants; or 'the closeness or the at
mosphere thqs created. After the conk
is harvested, and before the adveut of
frost, there will be ample time for them
to root, especially if the soil be well cul
tivated. Burnt lauds, in which th? nat
ural vegetative ' powers of the soil are
augmented by the alkaline principles of
the ai-hes, are very favorable to the cul
tivation of turnips; and when they are
sowed among corn on such, they almost
invariably produce a lucrative crop. Hun
dreds of bushels of excellent turnspsmay
frequently be grown in this way without
any appreciable diminution of the com
crop. "Economy is wealth," says the
adage and it is certain no one can prac
tice it long without increasing to some
extent, his means for future operations
and enterprises. In this business cf pro
ducing cheap crops in substitution for
the more expensive cereals, we gain sev
eral important advantages, among which
may be mentioned as pot the least prom
inent, the scving of time, and the re
alization of a lucrative yield of produce
from land prepared for another species
of roots or grain. The ravages of in
sects often prove fatal to many vegetables
espcially to Indiau corn ; and when this
happens, unless the vacated land can be
filled with some crop of later growth, it
must remain, either in part or wholly

used in the cultivation of turnips. Ground
